Editorial Reviews


This DVD is focused on the medical needs of the body for those experiencing acute and chronic back pain. Emily Kligerman gives a thorough explanation for types of back pain, which provides an excellent understanding for all knowledge levels. Helpful illustrations are provided. Also two ''teachers'' are shown side-by-side, which allows viewers to easily modify each pose. This is a very well organized and descriptive DVD from Real Bodywork. --Portland Yoga Examiner

The Yoga Therapy routines are ideal for those who suffer from back pain. The multi-chapter video allows the person to choose the routine that is right for their condition. Emily Kligerman has mastered the balance of relaxation and restorative movements that promote healing and continued wellness. --Charles R. Bissell, D. C., Chiropractic Sports Physician

Product Description

The Yoga Therapy for Back Pain DVD includes 13 routines to help restore proper function to the entire back. These safe and gentle exercises increase mobility and reduce pain. This beautifully filmed DVD features five 15 minute & five 30 minute routines for the upper back, sciatic pain, bulging disk and sacroiliac joint pain. Each condition is addressed separately, so you will get the proper instruction for your situation. There is also a general back maintenance routine in three time options (17, 32, & 44 minutes) as well as a 20 minute Chair Yoga routine and a short Guided Meditation for relaxation. Whatever the level of your pain, or if you just want to strengthen your back, this DVD has the safe and appropriate therapy for you. If you are not sure exactly what type of back pain you have, this DVD also explains the different types so you can have a better understanding of your pain.

First, I do not recommend video yoga unless you have taken classes from a qualified instructor - this is because an instructor will personally make sure you understand what is meant by various instructions, and how to make the most of a pose.

I am just an amateur, but I find yoga to be very therapeutic both physically and mentally. At 58, I find that my lower back aches frequently, and I have had neck and shoulder issues for years, due to an old whiplash and being an accountant. My chiropractor always says that I am in better shape whenever I'm doing yoga consistently (which is not during tax busy season!)

What I like about this DVD is that it provides groups of routines for general back health, for the upper back, and then for three specific types of lower back issues. Each one of these provides two or more routines of increasing length, with the shortest being 17 minutes, and the longest about 45 minutes. The instructor also goes over the types and symptoms of different back issues in an overview segment, but I checked with my chiropractor to see which lower back routines she thought I should use (she suggested a combination of the routines for disk bulge and for the sacro-iliac joint)(upper back is a given).

This DVD does not provide advanced or difficult poses. I haven't finished going through all of the longest routines, but the beginning of each seems to be exactly the same for all back issues, and it's extremely gentle. I have no problem doing the poses as Emily Kligerman does them, which means they are not very extreme, and her video partner illustrates the same poses even more gently than she does them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping my back healthy April 29, 2009
The last time I injured my back (by merely bending over) I knew I needed to find a way to strengthen my back. I was in pain and semi-incapacitated for over a month. Yoga Therapy for Back Pain is my salvation and I have incorporated it into my daily routine. I have focused on the General Back and the Bulging Disk routines and I especially like having the option of routine length. With Emily's guidance I feel I have found a safe, gentle and relaxing way to end each day knowing I am conditioning my back against future injury.

NOTE: I received a free review copy of this DVD from the web site Metapsychology Online Reviews; a longer version of my review appears on that site.

Yoga Therapy for Back Pain provides a series of gentle, therapeutic yoga practices for back care. Instructor Emily Klingerman's training is consistent with the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya; her approach is similar to another school of yoga descended from that same yoga master, Viniyoga, in that she incorporates dynamic movement within the postures. There are a total of 12 asana practices plus a separate meditation segment on this DVD. The Main Menu of the DVD divides the practices by condition and into routines of varying length as follows:

General Back: 17min--32min--44min

Upper Back: 15 min--30 min

Bulging Disk: 17 min--31 min

Sacro-Iliac Join: 15 min--30 min

Sciatic Pain: 17 min--30 min

Chair Practice: 20 min

Meditation: 10 min

Although the option for different length practices is nice, there is actually NOT quite as much variety as there appears at first glance. All of the practices are made up of shorter sequences which are strung together, and if you try the the longest routine, the 44-Minute General Back, you have basically done everything that is available on the DVD (with the exception of the Chair and Meditation practices). All of the practices are filmed in a featureless white studio; soft music plays in the background. Klingerman teaches via voiceover (she does not mirror-cue), and she is shown practicing alongside fellow yoga therapist Arturo Peal, who displays modifications for some of the postures.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT PROGRAM; HOW TO SELECT POSES FOR YOUR NEEDS February 13, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful, gentle, yoga program for healing and strengthening the back. It is professionally done and includes soothing background music. Each sequence begins with relaxation and conscious breathing and ends with relaxation. The verbal instructions are excellent and the visual demonstrations, with two teachers, who often present a pose along with an easier variation, are very well done. Almost anyone should be able to do these sequences (avoid any that cause pain or increase discomfort from an injury). Understandably, some advanced yoga practitioners find the poses too basic, but that does not diminish their value for the back. I really like that specific sequences of poses are offered for three low back problem areas (bulging disc, sciatica, sacro-illac joint). There are also sequences for "general back," "upper back," and "chair practice," and a meditation section. Each area of focus (excluding "chair practice" and "meditation") gives you the option of doing a short sequence of about 15 min. or a longer sequence of about 30 min. (with an additional 44 min. sequence for the "general back"). Keep in mind that it takes time for healing and strengthening to take place, and for many of "us" with back injuries, a regular routine of yoga or exercise may need to be done "forever."

Many of these poses are repeated in different sequences. All of the poses for Sacro-Illac Joint (SIJ) can be found on the 31 min. sequence for Bulging Disc. You can, of course, pause the DVD at times and do a longer stretch or add an additional physical therapy stretch. For all the poses on the DVD you will need a yoga mat, a bolster (or equivalent support), a blanket, 2 yoga blocks and a yoga strap.
